Gabi baked a beautiful cake for our wedding reception. Gabi is so pleasant to email with, & she organized a takeaway cake tasting for us as we aren't from Kerry! The flavours of the cake were absolutely delicious. As someone who appreciates a lot of frosting (whilst my husband does not), Gabi created tiers that were both fully frosted as well as semi- naked to appease all eaters. We are so delighted with our cake!! Thank you Gabi!

Gabi made us a beautiful 4-tier cake for our wedding in August 2022 - and there was not a bite left over! Each tier was a different flavour and absolutely delicious. We live overseas and Gabi was very flexible in preparing samples for us to taste for the days we were in the area at short notice. I would not hesitate to recommend Gabi!

Gabi was amazing to deal with from start to finish. No request was too big or too small. The cake was everything we could have dreamed of and more - from the look to the taste! Everyone loved it and still talks about it today. I could not recommend Gabi enough. We will definitely be back to you again. Thanks so much Gabi - you are amazing at what you do!

Gabi baked our wedding cake in June 2022 and it was absolutely amazing. From our cake tasting to the wedding day, Gabi was so helpful and responsive. The cake was beautiful and she worked with our florist to add fresh flowers. I couldn't recommend her more!

Gabi made the cake for our wedding and it was so perfect. She was excellent to deal with throughout the whole process. The cake was great on the day, it tasted amazing. We went with two different flavors for alternating layers-Guinness & Baileys and Cookies & Cream. Neither flavours could have been any better. I'm someone that wouldn't usually like anything 'alcohol' flavoured but the Guinness and Baileys was so lovely. We got two sets of tasters beforehand so we could try lots of styles, they were all so good it was hard to pick. So many guests asked who had baked the cake and plan to use Gabi in the future. I will be booking Gabi for future events and would definitely recommend her for weddings. Thanks Gabi!

Gabi recently made our wedding cake. Gabi was very accommodating and the cake itself was absolutely stunning and tasted amazing. We had three different flavours and each of them was gorgeous.

Gabi made a wedding cake for mine and my husband’s wedding last month. The semi naked cake matched the theme of our wedding and the style of our venue perfectly. She delivered the cake to the venue herself and set it up beautifully with the flowers from our florist. She even sourced a cake topper that was custom made with mine and my husband’s names. The cake tasted good too. The only thing is the cake started tilting to the side at one point during our wedding reception, but it was probably because it was really warm inside the venue. Thanks so much Gabi! Your cake will be a part of our wedding memories forever ?❣️

We would like to extend a massive thank you to Gabi for the huge effort she put into making our wedding cake. It was the nicest, tastiest cake we have ever tasted! The flavours were outstanding on all of the 4 tiers especially the strawberry sponge with strawberry butter cream & everyone commented on the chocolate Guinness tier with baileys butter cream & just how delicious it was. It was magnificent!! Thanks again Gabi. Thoroughly enjoyed by everyone! Xxxxx?♥️??

Gabi made the most beautiful wedding cake, birthday cake, and wedding cookies! The wedding cake was the most delicious we have ever tasted. It was so moist and flavorful…..she is a true master! The wedding guests went back for seconds and thirds! It was THAT good! Only to be out done by the beauty of the cake itself. It matched the theme of the day perfectly. The cookies were also delicious and beautiful! Again, A+ on matching the theme! We cannot thank her enough. Gabi made the day perfect in every way! Lynn and Mike Sheehy from across the pond.

We recently ordered a drip cake with the cookies and cream filling from Gabi for a family event. Gabi was so accommodating and delivered it to the venue for our event. The presentation was absolutely beautiful with fresh flowers and the taste of the cake didn't fail to impress either. It was so fresh and we all really enjoyed it. We would definitely recommend a Gabi bakes cake to our family and friends.
